LinkedIn has announced a new job searching feature for users. Now when you search for jobs, it will show personalized insights about jobs where more money can be made.
LinkedIn also expanded the availability of LinkedIn Salary to more than 10 countries around the world. The pay raise opportunity feature will be displayed on a button on the job card and job listing. And you can receive personalized insights by submitting your salary within the LinkedIn Salary tool.
“With these personalized insights we hope you have the tools you need to make informed decisions about your earning potential. And don’t forget to tap your professional community for help and introductions along the way,” said LinkedIn’s.
“In fact, more than 70% of professionals get hired at companies where they have a personal connection. Finding the job that’s right for you is the most important part of your career journey, and whatever your path, we’re #InItTogether.”
LinkedIn’s also recommended a few tips for navigating your career. The first tip is to do your research by being prepared for a conversation about your salary and see what other professionals in your industry are being paid.
Plus LinkedIn suggests that you go into the conversation with a solid number in your head and lay it out on the table. And if your employer comes back with less than what you were asking, then work together to find common ground and make sure you are prepared to explain why you deserve it.
